Day 9 – Grey scale drawing

{Writing this on day 18!!}

Damn, I’m so far behind on these blogposts. Luckily, I’m not as far behind on the actual projects. Though still 4 behind on the projects, so that’s not good either.

A mix of starting working again (after 1.5 years of unemployment) has been hard, I have been tired and very emotional. I think having a feeling that I need to prove myself as a person with a job again has been harder than I expected.

So I took a few days off (not by choice, mostly because I couldn’t keep my eyes open long enough to code and I couldn’t manage one single coherent thought in my mind). I have as mentioned picked up some of the slag, and I felt like today (Store Bededag = a day off work) would give me a chance to catch up some more.

So here is my 9 day project: A drawing programme that draws with grey-scale rectangles.

Draw something here!

This was a very fun project and here is what I learned:

  • Working with the random color generator function as I did in this project, but instead of slicing up to 8 numbers, I only sliced 4, so that I got 2 numbers, which I repeated 3 times. All grey scale HEX codes are 3 sets of the same number (for example: #333333 or #474747) – didn’t actually know that, but luckily my BF knows everything 😉
  • It was super fun playing with the look of the “pixels”. I’m so glad that the BF always makes me try something that I wouldn’t do myself.
